In pictures: At home with Daniel Libeskind
An exhibition entitled “Where Architects Live” – which forms part of the Salone del Mobile design fair in Milan, Italy – takes visitors inside the home of New York building designer Daniel Libeskind.
Event president Claudio Luti said: “’Where Architects Live’ is an original installation, inspired by leading contemporary architects’ own concepts of the domestic space, devised especially for the 53rd edition of the Salone Internazionale.”
Via film, videos and reconstructions it takes visitors inside the homes eight of the world’s most respected architects: Libeskind, Shigeru Ban, Mario Bellini, David Chipperfield, Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas, Zaha Hadid, Marcio Kogan, and Bijoy Jain.
The curator of the event, Francesca Molteni, who created it alongside architect Davide Pizzigoni, said their joint project unveils the architects’ visions of living, their choices and their obsessions.
In New York, Daniel Libeskind’s light drenched Manhattan apartment features Le Corbusier chairs and art materials. Reminiscent of his own clean, sleek and striking architecture, the space typifies minimalism through a monochromatic black and white pattern.
